About Book

Card catalog description
This book considers the critical ten weeks of presidential transition for the most recent party changes in the White House - Nixon in 1968, Carter in 1976, Reagan in 1980, and Clinton in 1992 - and signals a pivotal change for the future. Drawing primarily on interviews with White House, campaign, and transition aides, as well as seasoned observers of Washington politics and experienced reporters, Charles O. Jones identifies the conventional expectations for an effective transition in regard to dismantling the campaign; preelection planning; creating a temporary structure; role and readiness of the president-elect; timing and quality of appointments; sequence of decisions; connecting with the bureaucracy, Congress, and the international community; establishing a theme; and relating to the press.
